Publisher's Summary

Spectacular fossil finds make today's headlines; new technology unlocks secrets of skeletons unearthed 100 years ago. Still, evolution is often poorly represented by the media and misunderstood by the public. A potent antidote to pseudoscience, Written in Stone is an engrossing history of evolutionary discovery for anyone who has marveled at the variety and richness of life.

Very informative

It reads like a text book. But listening to it on audible was a much better platform. The reading is able to draw you into the history and the record and the evolution of many many species including our own

Excellent book

A good mix of evolutionary theory, history and fossil detective work. Very enjoyable. Worth listening to more than once.
